• Michael Keaton Brings Back Batman and Beetlejuice on Saturday Night Live

    Michael Keaton brought back his beloved characters Batman and Beetlejuice during his Saturday Night Live appearance. But it took some prodding from the SNL cast members during the opening monologue. Keaton shot back into the spotlight last year after playing a washed-up superhero actor in Birdman. But for who grew up in the 1980s, he is still known as Batman and Beetlejuice, despite appearing in those movies more than 20 years

    Saturday Night Live: Sarah Silverman as Joan Rivers, ISIS, Ebola, Vitamix and more (Videos)

    To say this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live was better than last week’s season opener would be a sever understatement. Last night veteran comedian Sarah Silverman led SNL to a consistently entertaining, funny and smart show. Let’s hope the show can maintain the rest of the season. The cold open for SNL’s second episode of its historic 40th season was decidedly more political — and decidedly better executed —

    Saturday Night Live’s season 40 premiere was a disappointment so it can only get better, right?

    One of the most difficult forms of comedy to execute well is live sketch. I think even the most casual comedy consumers can agree on this. When you see live sketch comedy at a theater done well, it’s magical. When it’s bad, it’s not just bad– it’s excruciating to watch. And this is why I root for Saturday Night Live every year. I understand how impossible it is to deliver

    Miley Cyrus plays Michele Bachmann in government shutdown music video

    When Miley Cyrus released her bizarre video for “We Can’t Stop” earlier this year, rational human beings would never have thought it would be mashed up with something as political as a government shutdown. But it has– and to great effect. During last night’s Saturday Night Live, NBC aired “We Did Stop,” featuring Cyrus as insane Tea Party Republican Michele Bachmann and Taran Killam as Speaker of the House John

    Barely there Lindsay Lohan flops in an otherwise standard Saturday Night Live

    Last night’s Saturday Night Live was one of the most anticipated of the current season, seeing as constantly embattled actress Lindsay Lohan was returning as its host for her fourth time and after a six-year absence. So, how did she do? Well, she looks relatively healthy and maybe clean and sober. But, as a whole, she seemed pretty underwhelmed to be there, regularly running through her lines with little to
